Clearly, in appropriate disciplines, professors need and want to engage students in classroom discussions about this critical topic. But how best to tackle such a sensitive subject? One way involves the use of texts addressing the issue in a host of ways.
The Alaska Quarterly Review , UAA's nationally lauded literary journal, recently hosted a public event that featured a dramatic reading of the acclaimed essay White Horse by Eliese Colette Goldbach, which describes an on-campus rape; the reading was followed by a panel discussion. This session offers a followup to that conversation, and will introduce educators to a number of strategies drawn from UAA's internationally recognized Difficult Dialogues publication, Start Talking: A Handbook for Engaging Difficult Dialogues in Higher Education. Join us to explore the range of tools available to instructors seeking to effectively help their students explore these issues in an academic setting.For additional information about this topic please contact the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence firstname.lastname@example.org
